Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 ounces A.1. Original Sauce (1/4 cup reserved)
  • 2 12 lbs steak (flatiron or other thin beef steak)
  • 1 (17 1/3 ounce) package puff pastry sheets, defrosted overnight in refrigerator
  • 6 ounces goat cheese, sliced thinly to yield 16 slices (plain or herb)
  • 6 ounces walnuts, finely ground


  1. In 1 cup A.1. sauce, marinate the steak, preferably overnight.
  2. Grill or roast the marinated steak until meat thermometer indicates "rare".
  3. Cool before slicing into thin, across-the-grain slices and then into small diagonal pieces.
  4. Combine the beef slices with the reserved 1/4 cup A.1. sauce.
  5. Roll out both puff pastry sheets slightly to square them off and cut each sheet into 4 squares.
  6. Place about 3 to 4 TBSP beef pieces in the center of each square.
  7. Turn squares diagonally to you and place 2 goat cheese slices on top of the beef and dust with ground walnuts.
  8. Close the triangle by folding over the pastry and seal by pressing edges together with a fork, prick the tops twice to release steam.
  9. Bake at 425 degrees about 25 to 30 minutes or until puffed and golden.
